MORE snow and sleet has been forecast for the county, with night-time temperatures set to plummet.

Jim Bacon, a forecaster for WeatherQuest, said we were coming to the end of the current weather front but said another would arrive on Wednesday bringing a mixture of rain, sleet and snow.

He said conditions today would remain cold and cloudy, with the potential of further sleet and snow showers.

“Tomorrow is looking a lot better,” he said. “It will be brighter but still a lot of cloud and sleet and snow.

“It will get a lot colder and there is the chance of some very frosty conditions.

“We could see temperatures at night time get down to about -2C or -3C during the colder bits,

“After this front, we will have another on Wednesday which will be a mixture of sleet, snow and rain but I think by the time it reaches it will be more rain than anything.”

Mr Bacon said temperatures today would site around 2 or 3C.
